Rancho Meladuco Date Farm was founded in 2015 by Joan Smith a mom of 3 and accountant turned date farmer in Southern California. Joan and her husband grew dates on their family ranch in the Coachella Valley for many years and friends and family, accustomed to their annual gifts of the freshly harvested, hand-packed dates, plead with them to sell the delicious dates they were growing. When her youngest child turned 4, Joan decided it was time to take a turn at date farming. Known for being exceptionally tender, juicy and flavorful, Rancho Meladuco dates are what the date industry refers to as fresh dates due to their higher moisture levels. The resounding feedback is always the same from those who try them: "these are the best dates ever!" For Rancho Meladuco, they are unquestionably the most delectable and candy-like dates, so moist dates are the only dates they pack in their prime, hand-packed boxes offered here.
